22 May 2018 | Jonathan So

Are you looking for something to give your father this Father’s Day, now that the occasion is just about three weeks away? If you are still in a dilemma on what to buy him for Father’s Day, we’re here to help! Here are five gadget recommendations that you can consider purchasing for Dad. Not only are they useful, they are likely not something that he already has yet.

Car Camera

If you have a father who is mad about cars, then you can’t go wrong giving him a cool gadget that he can pimp his vehicle with. Therefore, a car camera is the perfect gift for him. Not only does it make him look cool and tech-savvy, it can also be useful as it helps him when it comes to manoeuvring the car at night as well as providing an additional security measure for the vehicle. Brands like HKS and Anytek offers a wide selection of car cameras across several price ranges to suit your budget.

Smartwatch

Another gadget to consider giving your dad is a smartwatch. Most smartwatches today have various sensors that track sleep patterns, steps taken daily, heart rate, etc. which can come in handy to monitor his health and overall well-being. Moreover, most smartwatches in the market today can also be linked wirelessly to smartphones, enabling you to receive any calls or messages via the watch. If your dad is one who cannot take his eyes off his mobile phone, then having a smartwatch is a good way to have him set the device aside. You can always start with a cheaper model from brands like Xiaomi and Fitbit to get your father familiar with the device before upgrading it eventually.
